Sounds like someone is phishing using WHOIS .... so as with any email you get that contains a link, examine the link to ascertain whether its real or not.

But registrars ARE required to send out emails to registrants asking them to confirm the WHOIS details are valid and up to date, another stupid ICANN "innovation" that actually achieves bugger all !!
